The Apocalypse Awards

Nathan Curnow

The Apocalypse Awards represents an exciting change in direction of Nathan Curnow’s award winning poetic voice. Inspired by the absurdity of the modern world, this new work charts our collective obsession with the end times, the horror and humour of our folly.

‘Nathan Curnow’s poems reveal a willingness to take risks - with form, subject-matter and technique. His eye for detail and ear for exquisite music have always been hallmarks of his work, and The Apocalypse Awards is testament to these gifts. Arresting imagery, deft shaping of line and control of breath are in abundance. This is Curnow’s finest book to date.’ - Anthony Lawrence (author of Headwaters)

‘The book bristles with energy and mania; by turns nightmarish, surreal and ghoulishly funny. It presents us with a relentless onslaught of quotidian dystopia and dysfunction, like intricately painted modern visions of damnation painted on the walls of some secular church, which somehow manages to leave you feeling simultaneously breathless and violated.’ - Paul Summers (author of Primitive Cartography)

Featuring illustrations by Lily Mae Martin
